to complain about abortion, about taxes, this did happen on tax day in boston, the place of the tea party. or are they trying to protest foreign wars or something. that statement has been completely lost. >> well, clint, that goes to your point about motive. we know that generally, terrorism is often defined in three ways. acts or threats of violence. intended to communicate fear to a wider audience than only the victims affected. then to motive, a religious or political i am a by the perpetrator. we know that the president and fbi investigators are at this as a terrorist incident. from your experience, when the fbi is actually looking at the profiles, can they at this juncture know for a fact that there is a political or economic or religious motive here? cunning that at this stage? >> i don't think we know it at this stage. we know the device. initially we were told it was a small ied, perhaps like a pipe bomb. which you can get that out of an anarchist's cook book. now we're told it was a pressure cooker filled with explosives. that takes us back to september 1976 when a group of croat
's that kind of symbol that a terrorist would look at. and also it's tax day. it's april 15th. and if it's a domestic type of terrorist that hates their government and wants to rebell against it, that's also a symbol as well. i think we'll follow the evidence the way law enforcement people do, being a former da, you only know what you know. and they're sorting those things out. i can tell you this, that the fusion center here where the federal law enforcement people work with the state law enforcement people and the local is one of the finest in the whole country. it's rated that way. and so there's though question in my mind that that group added with the assets of the entire country right now, that the president is calling on, will bring the person responsible to justice. there's that level of confidence right thousand. but it's hard to even go there when you're sitting there, that people that you know, and people that know other people have been injured thin this. three have already lost their lives. it's hard to get past that, but the professionals who are doing their are doing that
we do know. let's be thankful we have spent our tax money to build up the capacity to do this, thankful of a police department, a fire department and public health people. you know, it's fashionable these days for people in my line of work to brag about cut and reduce government. i'm glad they weren't successful. this is an enormously expensive undertaking. large numbers of people and people complaining they're paid too much. well, i hope we have the best possible people. i hope we have people who are the investigators, scientific investigators, personality people who can do this. and i hope they're going to be able to get answers but i don't see how anybody can know right now. >> sir, one thing that was written this morning about "boston globe" column miist and said it's left with an unnerving proposition. a homegrown, lunatic, foreign inspired or sponsored, we'll never feel safe in our own town. i know you said you want to feel optimistic. what's your message of people of boston and massachusetts? >> that's greatly hyperbolic. we have a terrible attack. thousands of people k
towards a foreign or domestic. it could be either one. patriots day, also tax day. that could've got people up in arms. it could be a foreign type. so you leave all the options, all the possibilities open and let the evidence and the cctv cameras and the witnesses will bring you to your suspects. >> chief, how extensive is the camera network in boston? obviously, when something happens in london you can -- >> dial it up. >> you can dial it up pretty quick. there are a few streets in london that aren't on close circuit tv. do you know what the situation is in boston? >> yeah, my sense is most american cities, new york is going that route. there's nothing like london and belfast. those two cities have complete integrated system and it's almost nothing without it being captured on cctv cameras. as a matter of fact, back in 2005 in london, they were able to follow those guys from outside of london all the way into london to the subways and to the bus. so there the cctv cameras were absolutely invaluable in the investigation. my sense is boston -- they will have some cctv cameras. filming
was as a member of congress one of the cheerleaders for less government, lower taxes. no tax cut would have helped us deal with this or will help us recover. this is very expensive. you have adequately described thousands and thousands of people, questioning people, checking things, providing the medical care. we're not asking people, look, do you have private health insurance or not, can you afford this or not? maybe the government will have to pay for it. and this is an example of why we need -- if we want to be a civilized people, to put some of our resources into a common pool so we are able to deal with this, and to deal with it, you can't simply be responsive once it happens. there has to be in place experts. experts in detection, experts in public health. so on the hole, i would say this is a terrible day for our society, but a day when i hope people understand the centrality of having a government in place. in boston, a time like this, no one thinks about saving pennies, going forward, i hope people aren't going to think, oh, okay, you spent tens and millions of dollars, which is probably
. yesterday was tax day for everyone in this country but here in boston it was patriots day which commemorates the battles of lexington and concord, the start of the u.s. revolutionary war. big day not only for the country but boston. >> what was supposed to be a celebration turned out differently. let's go back to new york and savannah. >> matt on monday evening president obama spoke about this tragedy offering his thoughts and prayers to the city and vowing justice to those involved. i happened to sit down with him shortly before these explosions and we talked about a number of things in the headlines. we began with the gun legislation before congress that many say is now hanging by a thread. >> i think we've got a good chance of seeing it pass if members of congress are listening to the american people so let's just take the example of background checks. 90% of americans think that we should make it tougher for criminals or people with serious mental illnesses to obtain a gun, and so the notion that congress would defy the overwhelming instinct of the american people after what we saw happe
to help that i mean, this is a marathon. it is a taxing event anyway. they have got medical personnel right there at scene because so many runners are just absolutely maxed out when they cross the finish line. >> exactly. as we do here in new york city, we have medical tents set up, a lot of them at the finish line. it was great the doctors and first-responders were there to help administer care. the problem is they're not set up for an explosion or disaster of this sort but definitely helps to have the medical care present. jon: you say one of the things people should be alert for in the weeks and months, years to come is ptsd, posttraumaic stress disorder. >> yes. after a event like this which is horrific in nature, it also stirs deep emotions in lots of people. people will become depressed and many will suffer recurrent nightmares and visions of this type of trauma if they were actually there and witnessed it. we have to be alert for that occurring in both adults and children. anybody who was witness to this is subject to that it is something we have to keep a close watch on becaus
